family fun weekend

last weekend, mark's aunt linda, uncle rich, and cousin andelyn traveled out from pennsylvania to visit our home for the first time. since mark's parents moved to florida five years ago, we as a family have only made it out to mark's birthplace to visit his grandma and aunt & uncle two or three times. we talk to rich & linda frequently throughout the year, but we don't get the opportunity to spend a lot of time with them. so we were anticipating a fun family weekend, and it didn't disappoint. these are a few of the photos from our weekend {we spent the majority of our time at Greenfield Village and Henry Ford Museum}, but also enjoyed a few walks, our ice cream shop, and just being together.
